2008 Mercury Sable Premier 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
After 65,000 good miles, mostly highway, on a '05 Montego with only one latent factory defect that was readily fixed, I traded for a new Sable. About the only thing I really wanted was a built in satellite radio. After putting about 800 miles on the Sable I think Ford has just about got it right with the changes between the two models. Both are very roomy and comfortable on long trips.
Drivers seat that moves back upon exit and entry, wow just like a Lincoln. More power and less road noise than the Montego.
I don't see why Ford moved away from digital instruments. There are not many analog in modern aircraft since numerals and bars are more quickly recognized. Even in analog, the Sable speedometer is to small. No apparent front bumpers, I'm sure the repair shops love this. Daylight driving lamps.
